Draw and cut out various-sized circles from paper, craft foam, or felt to make a bear's head. You can choose colors other than those suggested below:
1 large brown circle for the head
2 medium brown circles for the ears
1 medium white circle for the muzzle
2 small white circles for the inner ears
1 small black circle for the nose
2 tiny black circles for the eyes
2Assemble the ears.
Glue the inner ears on top of the ears.
3Glue the ears to the head.
Glue the pair of ears behind the biggest circle.
4Glue the nose and muzzle.
Glue the medium-sized white circle at the bottom of the face to create the bear's muzzle. Glue the black nose on the upper section of the muzzle.
5Glue the eyes.
Glue the pair of tiny black circles above the muzzle to create the bear's eyes.
6Draw the mouth.
Finally, draw the bear's mouth with a black marker or crayon. As easy as that, you have just made a bear out of circles! See more crafting ideas in the section below.
Make a panda bear.
A panda bear does not need a muzzle. Instead, cut out 2 medium-sized black circles and glue these behind the eyes to make the panda's eye patches.
Create a body.
Create a body for the bear with more basic shapes. This purple teddy bear has an oval body and smaller oval limbs.
Make a frame.
Learn more shapes by framing the bear with squares and/or rectangles. Framing several bears can be a nice way of showcasing the children's finished bear crafts. If you've got lots of kids in your class, you can even make a bear quilt!
